JCHS Journalism Students Win Honors at
National High School
Journalism Convention
San Francisco, CA
The publications crew attended the National High School Journalism Convention over the weekend in San Francisco. We took eight outstanding JCHS kids, who joined about 5,000 high school students for three days of intense journalism cramming (then we walked their booties off over hill after hill all over San Francisco).
JCHS Journalism Awards
On Friday late afternoon our students competed against the best in the nation in journalism competitions. We are beyond excited to announce that three students brought home awards for their work.

Lili Hernandez earned an honorable mention in cover/endsheet design.
Alli Bedacht earned an honorable mention in theme design.
Sarah Swancutt earned an honorable mention in portrait photography.

Oaklea Middle School to Host
Regional OBOB Tournament
March 3, 2018
8am - 3:30pm

We are delighted to offer Junction City students the opportunity to participate in OBOB!  Through this program, our students have access to high-interest, high-quality literature.  OBOB guided discussions challenge students to work together, to think deeply, and to effectively share their thoughts and ideas.  AND, they love the competition and representing their schools!

We are honored to be hosting Lane County's middle school level OBOB tournament, and are very grateful that one of our master teachers at Oaklea, Stacey Johnson, was willing and able to take on the role of tournament director. This tournament will require a great deal of volunteer support; patrons interested in learning more about these volunteer opportunities are encouraged to contact Stacey at Oaklea.

OREGON RISING. Great Schools. Great State.

Oregon Rising is a public outreach effort that's focused on learning about what Oregonians want for their children and their schools. At the heart of the work is the prompt to dream big, and to share the dream. In the first phase, we provided a survey and held community meetings. In both, we asked you to describe the education Oregon students would receive, if it were up to you.

Within two months, we heard from more than 10,000 Oregonians, from all walks of life and from every county in the state. Next, we will share our findings and then together, develop a vision and plan that can deliver what Oregonians want.

Oregon Rising refers to one thing we find most people agree upon: When our children are successful, we are all successful. Thus, our tagline: Great Schools, Great State. Because we believe great schools are the foundation for a great State of Oregon, and a great state of our economy, our communities and our future.

We have had a wonderful start to the 2018-19 school year! We celebrated one of our favorite small-town traditions last week- Homecoming Week. The highlight of the weeklong festivities was the annual Noise Night Parade followed by class competitions and games at Peden field on Wednesday night.

Below, you can read all about what is happening throughout the district, as well news from the September board meeting.

At TES, the school year is off to a fantastic start, with 146 students enrolled in grades K-5 and an additional 21 preschool spots filled. We have gotten to know our new families, both at the TPA meet-and-greet as well as at parent drop-off and pick-up each day; we also have already seen so many parents volunteering in classrooms and in the library, thank you.

Speaking of parent pick up and drop off, Principal Sisler would like to thank parents for their flexibility with our new dismissal procedures; we are asking parents who are picking up students to wait outside the gate until buses leave around 2:38. While we recognize this is a different routine for families, we have found this new dismissal procedure to be safer, limiting congestion around the buses, and more efficient for students and staff.

We also want to thank parents and families for getting their children to school and on time; attendance is up overall from this time last year, so THANK YOU! Attendance plays a significant role in long-term student success. It does not matter how fabulous the teaching is or how compelling the curriculum might be – if a child isn’t in school, he or she is missing instruction time. Missed days can be particular destructive in the early years, when students are learning the fundamentals. Statistically, students are considered chronically absent if they miss 10 percent of the school year – typically that’s 18 days of school, or just two school days a month. Whether absences are excused or unexcused,  missed days translate to missed instruction regardless of reason. Please know that we understand sick days, but we truly appreciate your efforts to get your child to school and on time, it makes a big difference.  Tony Scurto, Lane ESD Superintendent suggests working on household routines to make getting out the door easier; set out clothes and make lunches the night before, put keys and bags by the door, put permission slips and homework in backpack, and plan ahead. Easier mornings make it easier to get out of bed and into class (Scurto, T. Local Schools and Communities are Ready to Help. OregonFamily.Com, September 2018).

In other TES news, Kindergarten Readiness Assessments and Fall Easy CBM testing for students in grades K-5 are wrapping up. These assessments provide valuable baseline data for each student in Reading and Math, which will be used to measure student growth over the course of the year as well as identify those students in need of targeted interventions in order to achieve year end grade level standards. Creative scheduling and allocation of staff time will allow us to be very strategic as we seek to meet this goal.

We are excited to share that at an assembly on September 24th, Territorial was presented with a Merit Level Green School Award by Regional Oregon Green School Coordinator, Joshua Frankel. To celebrate everyone participated in an all-school recycling activity, and students and staff shared classroom recycling goals. We are excited to be working with Partners for Sustainable Schools to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

In upcoming events, the TPA will sponsor Jog-a-thon on October 11th, an all-school Harvest Party on the afternoon of October 31st and the Taste of Territorial spaghetti feed and art show scheduled to take place on November 6th at the Long Tom Grange. It's clear Territorial and our ever-involved and supportive parent group are off and running this year!
